On Monday the Delhi High court has issued a notice to ED on Shivakumar's bail plea. Justice Suresh Kumar Kait has sought the response of ED with a status report and slated the matter for 14th October.

Earlier, Shivakumar approached the Delhi DC on Thursday seeking bail. He had also challenged the trial court's Wednesday order by which his bail plea was dismissed.

While refusing the relief, the trial court had said Shivakumar is an influential person, and if released at the crucial stage of the investigation, may influence witnesses or tamper with documents to hamper the probe.

In the high court, Shivakumar cited medical reasons as one of the grounds for securing Enforcement Directorate.

He has been presented in the court as his judicial custody ends today. The Delhi court had earlier sent Shivakumar to judicial custody till October 1. He was placed under arrest under provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
